Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown welcomed its 1000th 2021 baby into the world last week when baby boy Jamison was born in the BMC Birthing Center.
“Our team in the Birthing Center has always been hardworking and dedicated,” shares Stacey Jordan B.S.N., R.N., Manager Birthing Center and Inpatient Pediatrics. “But during the pandemic they’ve proven themselves in new ways that astound me. It is wonderful to reach this milestone together.”
Of course no one was happier than Jamison’s parents, Jessica and Cody of Sherburne, N.Y. — especially since they experienced some unexpected bumps along the way. After a smooth labor, he became twisted in the birth canal, requiring a cesarean section. But this was another opportunity for the Birthing Center Staff to shine.
COOPERSTOWN – Parents Paula Waffle, Eric Johnson and the staff at the Bassett Birthing Center welcomed Maverick James Johnson, the 1,000th baby born at the center in 2017, on Tuesday, Dec. 19.
Maverick was born at 3:57 p.m. Tuesday, weighing 8 lbs, 10 oz, 21 inches long. Though born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck, he was able to stay at the birthing center for the first few days of his care, rather than being transported to Albany.
